Birthday Blast & Star Blast Edgelits Dies Last Chance

Handstamped Birthday Card using Birthday Blast Stamp Set & Starblast Edglits Dies by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

I love celebrating my Stampin' Up! Team's accomplishments. 

Each month I send a card to the Top 10 in Sales a hand stamped card congratulating them.  The Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Edgelits Dies is the perfect set to create a card to help them celebrate.   The Top Ten in March received this card in their mail-box.  Everyone still loves to receive a hand stamped card in the mail.

Here is how to make this hand stamped card.

  • The card base is a piece of 4 1/4" x 11" Whisper White card-stock fold in half.
  • I stamped the image in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the center top of the card-front.
  • The stars are embossed using a piece of 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" Rich Razzleberry cardstock using the Big Shot and the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. 
  • I cut out the stars from a piece of Shimmery White paper using the Big Shot and the Star Blast Edgelits Dies and adhered it behind the top of the Rich Razzleberry card-stock and adhered it to the bottom of the card-front.
  • With the Star Blast Edgelits Dies I cut out a star from Silver Glimmer paper. 
  • Stamp WAHOO in Rich Razzleberry ink on Whisper White and cut it out using the tag from the edgelits dies.

Time is running out for items in the Occasions Catalog.  You won't want to miss this fun set for celebrating Birthdays, special achievements and anything you want to say Wahoo about.

Sunday Sketches SS031 - Really Fun Different Fold Card

Welcome to Sunday Sketches SSO31 by Stamps to Die For. 

Sunday Sketches SS030 Card Sketch using Stampin Up Products www.stampstodiefor.com

Each Sunday I post a card sketch along with a card I created using the sketch.  Sketches often help get my creativity fired up.

Sunday Sketches SS030 Card Sketch using Stampin Up Products www.stampstodiefor.com 2
I created this card for last week's Color Your World International Blog Hop and then decided to set it aside.  As often times happens after looking at it a bit I decided it wasn't so bad and I loved the way it folded differently so I thought I could use it for Sunday Sketches.  This is one of those times I create the card and then the sketch.

Sunday Sketches SS30

For the card base I used the Thick Whisper White cardstock 6" x  5 1/2"  folded in half to create a 3" x 5 1/2" card front. I am excited to say Very Vanilla will have an optional Thick too in the New 2017 Annual Catalog!  Love using this firmer cardstock for the card bases.

The stamps I used for today's card are from the Number of Years stamp set with coordinating Large Number Framelits.  I like how the numbers don't stamp solid giving a bit of dimension. I stamped them in Basic Gray and attached them with dimensionals to a Smoky Slate 2 7/8" circle I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Big Shot.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the stitched shapes if you hadn't noticed.

The polka dot paper (2 1/4" x 5 1/4") is from the Naturals Designer Series Paper Stacks. 

Happy is stamped in Basic Black and the ribbon is the retiring 1/8" Stitched Smoky Slate Ribbon.

This card will fit into our Medium Envelopes for mailing.   Hope this fun fold sketch will inspire you to stamp a card.

Border Buddy Saturday - High Tide Stamp Set

BB High Tide Stamp Set 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

It's Border Buddy Saturday and it's Alison here today.  Patsy and I give away free cards every single month and today I'm sharing one of those cards with you!  Let me give you a little background on our Free Card Program.  Each month we choose two stamp sets and we each make 2 cards with each set.  Then we prepare an 8 page PDF with all the instructions, measurements and supplies and give it as a thank you gift to our customers who purchase through our online stores.  That's all you have to do - place any size order through our store.  It gets better....when that order is $50 or more we send you two of the cards in the mail! My customers love receiving the cards each month.

BB High Tide Stamp Set 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

This month one of our stamp sets is High Tide and I'm so thrilled it's going to be in the next Annual Catalogue so you can use the PDF in the future too.  This card uses a fabulous designer paper stack called Serene Scenery and it had some fabulous designs including this one that looked like the shore and ocean.  Sadly it's retired and has already sold out.  You could create a similar look with a watercolour wash technique.

BB High Tide Stamp Set 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

The lighthouse is a two step technique where you use two images, one on top of the other, to create a multi coloured final image.  In Vancouver we have many lighthouses because we are on the water and so I have a natural love for them.  I stamped the lighthouse and then stamped the sentiment on top. 

Screen Shot 2017-04-18 at 11.24.39 AM

These cars were created by the talented concept artists at Stampin' Up!  You can make any colour lighthouse using the two step method and add all the other elements easily because the stamps are photopolymer and you can see right where to place them.

Just in CASE Series - saying Goodbye to In the Meadow stamp set.

CASE = Copy And Share Everything

Each week I pick out a card from the catalog and either copy it exactly or change up the stamp set or colors or maybe even both. When CASEing if you go too far, you are then creating your very own card and have just been inspired by the card or project you started to CASE.

Just in CASE 4-20 page 140xxx-tile

Most of you have commented when I CASE you love when I change it up a bit so the only thing that is the same in today's card is the layout.  

Some of the items may not be available when you go to order them since retiring paper, inks and accessories are ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!
